“…my cup overflows.” Psalm 23:5
Ok, I’ll admit it. I love coffee and a morning is not quite right without it. I fill my cup with the hot steaming brew but if it overflows I’ve poured too much. An overflowing cup is a picture of abundance. It’s more than enough. It’s more than our cups can hold. And yet, that’s what this tiny phrase is indicating. When we get Jesus, we get more and more and more. He is Yahweh Manah, the Lord my Portion and with the Lord, my portion is big, bigger than I can even imagine. He pours into my life so much that it overflows.
How great is that!
Sometimes people think their lives diminish if they come to Christ. Nothing could be further from the truth. Our lives get bigger. God has big, humongous plans for each and every one of us and He pours so much into us that it overflows.
The next time you pick up your morning coffee, or hot tea, or steaming hot chocolate, take a look at the cup. God is pouring so much into you this very minute that your cup is flowing over.
And you gotta love that!
Jesus, You are my portion. And what you give me is so big. Thank you that You cause my cup to not only be filled, but to overflow.
